REDUCED ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
As a beginner golfer, you tend to lose a lot of balls. But each lost ball has a negative impact on the planet. This is THE issue we have been working on for the Distance 100 in 2021. Rather than improving its performance or lowering its price even further, we thought the best thing we could do for this ball was to reduce its environmental impact.
NOTHING IS LOST
We decided to use waste material from the production process during the manufacturing process. Our research showed us that we could use up to 22% reprocessed material in the core, 33% in the yellow cover and 50% in the white cover without having any negative impact on the performance of the ball.
LESS IS BETTER
All golf balls, matte or shiny, are varnished. It looks better, it’s more durable, but it’s not very eco-friendly. So we got rid of the varnish layer on the Distance 100 ball. This does not affect the performance of the ball in any way. We asked beginner golfers if they were bothered by this and most of them said no, they like the satin look and if it was better for the planet, it was a no-brainer. So we did it
These choices during the Distance 100 ball manufacturing process save 125 tonnes of CO2 per year. That’s the equivalent of 125 transatlantic flights.
